Is the Greenville Campus part of USC Upstate?

Yes. Our classes are taught by USC Upstate faculty, and students enrolled in programs housed in Greenville have the same rights and privileges as any USC Upstate student.

Why was the Greenville Campus started?

We understand that not everyone takes the same path or uses the same timeline toward a college degree. The Greenville campus serves anyone in the region who wants to continue their education but needs flexibility in how they attend classes. While anyone can access our programs, we are uniquely able to support adult and non-traditional students who need to balance school with other life and work responsibilities.

We are also here to be of service to Greenville. As part of the USC Upstate public school system, we provide accessible, affordable higher education to Upstate citizens. We provide professional development and corporate development to local professionals, and we seek to engage the community in unique learning experiences.

What courses will transfer from previously attended colleges?

If a student transfers from a two-year technical college in South Carolina, a maximum of seventy-six (76) credits are transferable. A maximum of ninety (90) credits may be transferred from a four-year college. The state of South Carolina provides a list of courses that may be transferred from South Carolina Technical Colleges, found on page 23 of the USC Upstate catalog. In considering courses that will transfer, prospective students must take into consideration the major(s) they want to pursue. General and specific school transfer information is available at USC Upstate Admissions.

Prospective students are encouraged to make an appointment with an advisor who will complete a tentative evaluation of the credits earned and relate it to the student’s major of interest. For a tentative transcript evaluation, students must provide a copy of unofficial transcripts. Please call 864-552-4242 to find out who to contact for your major of interest.

If you have previously attended USC Upstate and have not enrolled for at least one major semester and would like to attend classes at USC Upstate again, you need to complete a re-admit application and submit a $10 fee. Note full re-admittance guidelines posted by Admissions.
